Style of the Day with Split Hem Dress


Hi there! Happy Saturday, Christmas eve, first day of Hanukkah to all my lovely and wonderful readers out there. I had a wonderful day so far. l took my own advise and spent the day living by the moment. I had my favorite Starbucks Peppermint Mocha with cheese danish, followed by doing some last minute shopping, a nice manicure with my sister, family lunch at Red Lobsters. There, l tried experiencing mindful eating with my Bahama Mama. Boy, it never tested so good.



Bahama Mama

I returned home just to find out that my heating system froze on me and due to the holidays, I may not have a working heater until next Tuesday. Nonetheless, I am leaving in the moment and it’s kind of wonderful. l have my family surrounding me. l am following our Christmas tradition. We binge watch Christmas movies on Christmas movies. Now, I am sharing my thoughts with the most wonderful people. So, cold you cannot defeat me today I am warmed up by enjoying the moment.

My lovely readers, today I thought that I will share my outfit of the day. It was a dreary, cold and rainy day, and I spent it my way, in style.



Coeur de Vague Black V-Neck Split Hem Dress ($29): This is a crossover slit falls from the left hip to the right hem, providing freedom of movement and double the style for it can be worn zipped up as a dress or unzipped as a shirt. I actually like wearing it unzipped for that edgy look. You know there is a saying about black dress, it makes you look thin.


Worthington Long-Sleeve Turtleneck Sweater at JC Penney (on sale for $19.99): The formerly frumpy piece is now totally chic (and warm). Due to the cold weather outside l wore the dress with a body hugging, black turtleneck sweater underneath. l love how adding the turtleneck turned this outfit edgy and chic.



Forever 21

Eva Longoria Faux Leather Pants (on sale for $49 at the Limited): I actually love this pant. l got them during the Black Friday sale. l love how breathable and stretchable it is. Most of all, it looks amazing. I am so glad that I did because this beautiful pant is currently sold out. You can get a more affordable version at Forever 21 for only $24.50. I actually like the NYDJ version available at Bloomingdales on sale for $110.68. Get your favorite Version and give your on outfit an extra edge.


Complete the look with a pair of your favorite boots. l wore a pair of stylish outfit that I got from Zulily a while ago. l love these rainboots because how stylish they look, but you can wear your favorite, stylish pair.

My favorite, wonderful readers it was my absolute pleasure sharing my experience with you. l love wearing something comfortable but chic at the sometime. l am wearing my cozy sweater sitting under the comforter and enjoying the moment.

I hope you enjoy this post as much as I loved writing it. May you have a wonderful and warm Christmas and Hanukkah with your loved ones. Remember, enjoy the moments and your experience will be even more magical.

Chic Fall 2015 Work Lookbook in Budget

Hi There! Now that we figured out how to style in budget, I asked myself why can’t we do the same for our work wardrobe? I asked was reading an article in Who What Wear showing some of the chic Fall 2015 work lookbook. I for one, thought they were little too expensive for me. Therefore, I went online and went to the same places, yes I am talking about H&M and Forever 21, and started looking for inspiration. I will now share with my findings. I hope you will find my findings helpful. My findings were inspired by the Who What Wear article.

Last but not least, you can pair the above outfit with H&M Suit Pant ($25) and the black handbag and you got yourself a chic work outfit that will you keep you warm during the cold days.

Hi There! Hope you had a great weekend. Like me, you guys might be worried about the current economics condition of our country. I for one, don’t want to let that impact my sense of fashion. Hence, I spent some time online, looking at places like Forever 21 and H&M to do some homework to see how can I keep my sense of fashion in budget. This is what I have so far. Let me know, if you have creative ideas that you would like to share.

Last but not least is the striped-trim ribbed dress which cost only $25. You are dress it up with heels or down with sneakers. I had a great time finding these fashion trends under budget for you guys and I hope enjoy it. I would love hear about your budget fashion styles. As for me, due to my Muslim upbringing, I would wear a black T-shirt under the mock neck side-slide top, like the textured knit crop top ($5). I would pair my chevron patterned skirt with embroidered lace boxy top ($18). I would pair the jogging style pants with jersey top in natural white stripe ($10).  Finally I would add some color to my dress with organic cotton-blend legging in chestnut ($6). Hence, there is budget fashion for every style. I would love to hear about your budget fashion find.
